EVERYDAY HERO / ROUNDS

Saving lives, one heart at a time
This educator raises awareness about sudden cardiac death.
heart conditions that might
otherwise go undetected.
The program saves lives by
identifying students with deadly
heart conditions.

JENNIFER SHEA manages
Beaumont Children's Student
Heart Check program, which
has screened more than 15,000
teens for life-threatening

SPREADING THE WORD: My
goal is to raise awareness of
heart conditions in teenagers
and save lives beyond the
borders of Michigan. I recently
traveled to California to help
another hospital launch a
similar screening program.
THE GIG: Coordinating multiple
free Student Heart Check
screenings at schools helps

me maintain connections with
parents, teenagers and young
adults affected by sudden
cardiac death. I also helped
launch a program to train
students how to use an AED and
perform CPR. And, I help with
fundraising through Children's
Miracle Network Hospitals.
SAFETY FIRST: I'm also
passionate about child
passenger safety. It was an honor
when the governor appointed
me to serve on his Traffic Safety
Advisory Committee. The other
committee members work for
state agencies.

DUAL ROLES: I love my job
because I can help save kids
from the number one cause
of medical-related deaths in
athletes and the number one
cause of injury-related deaths
in children.
HELPING FAMILIES: Parents
don't realize their child could
be at risk for a life-threatening
heart condition. Helping
families avoid tragedy is my
life's work.
